love my kids

every mom has her good days and her bad days. the bad ones consists of questioning ourselves on whether or not we are really making a difference...of good...in our childrens lives. and the good days when others show us we are.

every year the high school puts on a christmas party for underpriviledged kids. sitting on santa's lap, games, crafts, food...well this year all the school counselors got together and thought that there were enough charity organizations that they were giving too so this christmas party was going to be for the 'good' students in all the 3 elementary schools and the middle school. each teacher was to pick 2 students from her class that showed respect, politeness, and good citizenship to those around them.

each one of my school aged children were picked. i was so proud of them. and they had so much fun at the christmas party.




i was told once by a wise woman that if you children behave in public but not at home...you're doing something right. it's when they don't behave in either situation that you have to worry. thank you k, a, and m for being such good students and choosing the right. i love you all.
